Virus of the absurd

Absurd is the business of disappointment with meaning crawling to our knees in defeat and panacea for healing that lasts a full moment, before vanishing forever. Absurd is the claim of victory over a raging battle when one is in self-retreat and the enemy runs rampant in the streets. Absurd is the virus's real vocation butchering us like flies and then taking a breather before resuming its onslaught. Absurd is the cruelty of faith in post-virus that carries hope to self-destruction. Absurd is the mercurial moment of suspense between now and future laden in ambiguity. Absurd is the true essence beating in the heart of darkness enveloping the horizon. Absurd is the light of enlightenment promising relief. Absurd is the nature of humanity yearning for what it fears most.
